How Do You Put YouTube Videos on Canva?

Adding YouTube videos to Canva is a great way to create and share interesting visual content for your blog, website, or social media page. With the help of Canva’s simple drag-and-drop design tools, you can easily create stunning, eye-catching visuals featuring your favorite YouTube videos.

The first step in adding a YouTube video to Canva is to open the video you would like to use in a new browser window. Copy the URL from the address bar of the YouTube video.

Then open up your Canva editor and select the “Video” option from the left toolbar. Paste your copied URL into the search bar and click “Search”. Your selected video will appear in the search results.

Once you have selected your desired video, drag and drop it onto your canvas. You can adjust its size and position by clicking on it and using the handles that appear around its edges. Additionally, you can add text, frames, stickers or other design elements over top of it if desired.

When you are finished designing your canvas with your YouTube video included, click “Download” from the top toolbar. Here you will be able to choose whether you would like to download as an image file or a PDF file for easy sharing or printing.


Adding YouTube videos to Canva is an easy way to create attractive visuals for a wide variety of purposes. With just a few clicks and some simple design tools, anyone can quickly add their favorite YouTube clips directly into their Canva creations.
